Josef Gebhard Duller

Josef Gebhard Duller was born on October 11, 1931 in Amtzell, Germany to Josef and Anna Duller. Joe went to his heavenly home on January 3, 2020. He grew up with four beloved siblings: Herma, Bruno, Wilfried, and Artur.    Joe became a cabinet maker and met his late wife of 61 years, Agnes of Rorschach, Switzerland when he worked for her family’s cabinet shop. In 1954, Joe migrated to the United States to start a new life in Los Altos, CA. Agnes soon followed where they married and raised their four children: Peter, Joe, Mark, and Gabriele. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather.    Joe was a man of strong faith with his family being his main priority. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, and camping. Everyone knew him as a strong and hard-working man, who worked on his 42-acre property well into his 80’s. 

He worked for West Coast Industries in San Francisco for more than 40 years, and in 1993, Joe and Agnes moved to El Dorado, CA, where they started a Christmas Tree Farm that still operates today. A memorial service will be offered for Joe on February 6th 11am at Saint Nicholas Parish in Los Altos, CA. Following the memorial, the Interment will be held at Gate of Heaven in Los Altos, CA. His life will be celebrated at a reception at Saint Nicholas Parish following the Interment.
